W. Edwards Deming 1900 - 1993
 

Deming was a statistician and management thinker who had a profound influence on the quality movement through his work in both Japan and the USA. He is beats known for his '14 points' and his 'System of Profound Knowledge'.

Deming earned a Doctorate in Physics from Yale University in 1928, but his subsequent work made him lean more towards statistics. Deming went to Japan in 1947 to help the U.S. Occupation. While there he gave lectures to Japanese industry, the most significant series being in 1950. Following these JUSE created the prestigious 'Deming Prize', an annual prize awarded to companies with outstanding quality programs.

He returned to the US, still relatively unknown, but his contribution to a television documentary "If Japan can why can't we" captured the attention of American industry. He went on to advise and influence the Ford Motor company, K Mart and Florida Power and Light. Deming wrote "Out of the Crisis" and "The New Economics for Industry, Government and Education".

See the topic 'Quality Leaders' for other key figures in the quality movement.
